12 getting through the alphabet.

7.19.2012

With all the driving we've been doing lately, I've been making some progress on my Daisychain ABCs sampler from Posie Gets Cozy.  This project sat untouched in it's little pouch for quite a long time, but I've been enjoying working on it on long car rides!
I skipped the G and parts of some of the other letters because I cannot find my skein of black wool for the life of me.  I just need to buy another but I've been procrastinating.

The D and E were really fun and easy, I like the simplistic look of them.
I got carried away on the F and filled in the entire bottom section rather than just the right half, but I'm fine with the way it looks so it's staying.
 The H and I are some of my favorites.  The J was not so fun with all those curvy stem stitches!
Now I'm onto the K...

Also, a little off topic, but I'm loving this advice from Emily Henderson on styling your mantel.  Watch and learn :)

  2. Looks lovely! I wanted to start this and have it finished before my daughter was born. I was just about to buy the pattern today and start it to give to her for her 1st birthday in September. Looks like the perfect on-the-go or snuggle-in-bed project. I think the F looks fine too!
